CORPUS CHRISTI - Congressman Blake Farenthold presented the Flour Bluff NJROTC with a Congressional Commendation.

The team earned 1st place in all categories during the state championship last month covering academics, personnel inspection, physical fitness, armed regulation drill, unarmed regulation drill, armed exhibition drill, unarmed exhibition drill, color guard, overall drill.
Flour Bluff holds the record for the most Navy National Championships earned by any unit, including 11 Navy National Titles.
Congressman Blake Farenthold said, "It makes me proud to be in Corpus Christi where we have the Flour Bluff ROTC program that consistently wins. Just take a look at the trophy case they got out there. Not just state championships but national championships after national championships. They told me how many of these kids have gone on to college on ROTC Scholarships and are serving in or appointed to our service academies."
The students will compete in the All Service Grand Nationals in Daytona Beach, Florida this May. The best of luck to them.
